Windows 7 public beta available NOW

Software, Windows 7

steve-ballmer.jpgThought you might like a heads-up that the Windows 7 beta is available for download right now. I’m pleasantly surprised, I was expecting more like sometime this evening. Of course, you can’t get near the download page right now, because it’s so busy. Don’t worry, within an hour, it’ll be all over Bittorrent.

A quick recap, for those of you who didn’t see this post. Windows 7 is Microsoft’s new OS, and they’re looking at a release somewhere in the second half of this year. This is a public beta, which means that it’s unsupported. If it screws up your PC, then you’ve got to fix it, so unless you’re happy mucking about with PC innards, don’t install it.
